As I said in an earlier post I didn't make it down to Renton today because of the snow, so here's the Seahawks injury report for today courtesy of the Seahawks PR staff.
Sean Locklear (dislocated toe), Matt Hasselbeck (back), Leroy Hill (neck) and Jordan Babineaux (concussion) did not participate in practice today.
D.D. Lewis (chin) and Koren Robinson (knee) were limited participants in practice.
And here's the Jets injury report.
LB Eric Barton (knee), WR Laveranues Coles (thigh), LB David Harris (groin), NT Kris Jenkins (hip), WR Brad Smith (head), LB Bryan Thomas (shoulder) and OT Wayne Hunter (shoulder) were limited participants in practice.
WR Jerricho Cotchery (shoulder), OL Brandon Moore (ankle) and LB Jason Trusnik (knee) all fully participated in practice.
I talked to Deion Branch today for a piece I'm working on for tomorrow. Branch says he's healthy and he wants to return next season to play for Seattle. But he understands he has no control over the situation and therefore is not worrying about what happens during the offseason.
Branch said the reason for his improved play over the past couple weeks has been the opportunities he's been given to make plays, and that he's taken advantage of it. He also believes the team's 3-11 record is not indicative of the talent level of the team. He says injuries and the inability to win close games has been the team's downfall, and he expects Seattle to rebound next season.
"We know we have a good team," Branch said. "Our biggest thing is just staying healthy. And all of the guys in the locker room feel that way. It's hard not to."
